What's new?

Measure tool icon

Accuracy on the fly

Use the crosshair of the Quick Measure Tool inside enclosed areas. Move your mouse around to see the precise horizontal and vertical distances to the nearest parallel lines.

Compare Icon

Compare drawings and versions

Let F/X CAD tell you what's different between two drawings! Use the COMPARE command, and see what's new and what's gone with easy-to-see revision clouds you can hop between. Then, either import the changes or export a snapshot of the changes for your records.

Improved Purge Tool

It's easier to select the objects you want to purge out of your drawings. You can even view previews of blocks you're purging. It's also incredibly easier to find items you can't purge. See the reasons they can't purge – if they're placed, or referenced in an MLEADERSTYLE, for example. Want to select and zoom to those objects automatically? Just click the blue finder icon.

New Dark Blue CAD

Beautifully bold

The new dark blue theme is now a lot easier on the eyes for long days of drafting, and 2020 features crisper icons whose better-contrasting colors help make them faster to recognize at a glance. You can still switch to light theme if desired, with the same HiDPI icons. Also, if a contextual tab opens itself, such as the Layout or Hatch contextual tab, it will be highlighted to clearly denote that it's active.

Faster Performance on your Most-Used Tasks



Layer Property Changes


Accessing Items Over Networks


Reduce your computer grind time

Each save is now 66% faster, and regenerating after layer properties changes, like changing colors, is 88% faster. Also, accessing items over a network – such as Xrefs, blocks, and support files – is faster. These seconds will add up every day, greatly reducing interruptions to your workflow.

Integration with Online Storage

Save as button Equipment from manufacturers

Have an online folder service installed? When you go to Save, Save As, or Open from F/X CAD 2020, you'll see a shortcut to that service readily available.

Your tools where you want them

Our customized CAD ribbon interface features a complete reorganization of the ribbons to fit our users' needs. Aside from removing all the unnecessary icons, we've reordered the essential ones by usage frequency.
